    At the start of september i began a BTEC National Diploma in sport and I have come to realise I made a wrong decision in chosing this course. I found the subjects were not that good and realised my career options would be very limited. It is now November and it looks like I'll shall be returning to do A levels (If a school accepts me), but it looks like I'll have loads of work to catch up on and it is nearly christmas holidays already. I managed to achieve an A in my GCSE history and 2 As in English, so i'm thinking about taking them, hopfully studying journalism at university. I don't know if i'm making the correct decision changing over from BTEC to A levels... Is it too late? Impossible? Would I have to wait till next September and start in Lower sixth? Help please!!
